Old Paths, New Power: Awakening Your Church through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word Kindle Edition
From the Back Cover
It's been said that if you're excited about what God is doing elsewhere, imitate the faith, not the miracle. Old Paths, New Power shows us how to do just that.
Lifting up the tried-and-true path to transformation, Daniel Henderson reminds us that God doesn't work through methods, but through prayer and proclamation. Church leaders will be convicted and equipped to center their lives and ministry around God's power, clearing the way for:
- Powerful movements of prayer
- Preaching that transforms lives
- Revival only the Holy Spirit can unleash
Includes contributions from Frances Chan, John Piper, John MacArthur, Alistair Begg, and John S. Dickerson, plus over 30 links to online videos.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

But in the end, I found it hard to read through the book. It just wasn't compelling (and I hesitate to write that lest someone accuse me of not valuing the importance of prayer), and much of the book seemed to repeat itself. Henderson talks about his penchant for leadership books and leadership gurus early in his career, often at the expense of true prayer and the working of the Holy Spirit. But ironically, I felt much of the book was just that - a "rah! rah!" speech coming from a leadership guru, as opposed to a real study on prayer. It almost felt like we were trying to manufacture a revival.
But I don't want to be overly harsh. Henderson has good things to say; important things for our time. And there is much to be gained from the book in terms of evaluating your life, and the life of your church, in regards to the amount of time spent prayer.
I noticed Amazon and Goodreads have a slightly different meanings to their 5-point scale. I thought it was odd to have a different rating for the same book on two different sites, so I came up with my own scale below. For the record, it is fairly close to Amazon's scale, but allows me to be consistent between the two sites.
5 - Fantastic. Life-altering. Maybe only 30 in a lifetime.
4 - Very good.
3 - Worth your time.
2 - Not very good.
1 - Atrocious.
I am so glad that I did.
I am a pastor of a small church with barely a dozen people, and it has been very easy to get discouraged by our lack of people, property, and resources. But this book reminded me where our real resources are to be found. The simple call back to prayer and the ministry of the word has broken me down, worked me over, and set me on a clear path forward. This may be one of the most significant books I have ever read in my own ministry formation. It certainly could not have been more timely.
I highly recommend this book. I wish I could have given it six stars. I am an adjunct professor at a Christian college, and I believe this book should be required reading for anyone and everyone who aspires to the work of the ministry. It's that good. It's that important. Get it. Read it. Share it. You'll be glad that you did.
